Raven's Bread Hermit Ministries - Food for those in solitude

Raven’s Bread (formerly Marabou) derives its name from the experience of Elijah, the prophet in 1Kgs. 17: 1-6. Ravens, sent by God, nourished him during his months of solitude at the Wadi Cherith (the Cutting Place).

Raven’s Bread is a quarterly newsletter (FEB-MAY-AUG-NOV) for hermits and those attracted to solitude published by Paul and Karen Fredette. It seeks to affirm and support this way of life, providing information, reflections, news and notices offered by the hermit readers themselves.

At this site we offer a free but abbreviated version of our full printed newsletter, omitting the Discussion and Reader Forum featuring responses to a quarterly discussion topic, and Letters from the readers.

Any extra gifts (see Donate button below) will be used to subsidize Raven’s Bread for hermits who cannot cover the cost. If you have benefited from the free online service of our website and would like to support our ministry to hermits and religious solitaries around the world, please consider a love-gift. Let us pray for one another!
